Looking Glass (2018)



Critic Consensus: Looking Glass gives Nicolas Cage a chance to turn in an atypically understated performance, but this is still a suspense thriller with a fatal dearth of suspense or thrills.

Audience Reviews for Looking Glass

It's nice to see Cage get through a movie without doing the thing he usually does, but Looking Glass is pretty much a non-event.
